Alibaba Cloud has been included in the report of a top-level organization once again. Recently, the TPC, a world-famous organization that performs data management system benchmark evaluation, published the latest database analysis performance rankings after a series of benchmarks. AnalyticDB, the ultra-large-scale database developed by Alibaba Cloud, ranked first in the list, becoming the first cloud database product worldwide that has passed the strict TPC audit and verification.
To put it simply, AnalyticDB supports online statistics and analysis of data and can help enterprises explore the data value in a simple, fast and real-time manner. Ranking first in the TPC report means that AnalyticDB has become the fastest real-time data warehouse in the world!
AnalyticDB is only one of the richest cloud database products that Alibaba Cloud currently provides in China. Alibaba Cloud is leading many database segments and provides a powerful set of databases, including AnalyticDB, PolarDB, Graph Database (GDB), ApsaraDB RDS, and Data Transmission Service (DTS).
In New Retail scenarios, data analysts need to analyze PB-level data based on the ever-changing business model to make informed business decisions when they perform market trend analysis and make advertising campaigns.
This requires the features of AnalyticDB. Currently, AnalyticDB has become the fastest data warehouses in the world and shows 10 times better performance in complex analysis scenarios. AnalyticDB only takes milliseconds to perform multidimensional analysis of a trillion bytes of data.
POLARDB, the first cloud-native database in China provided by Alibaba Cloud, can meet the requirements of large-scale Internet traffic scenarios. POLARDB features strong elasticity and can solve many bottlenecks of traditional databases, including the high cost, poor scalability, technical complexity, and slow iteration.
POLARDB also adopts many advanced technologies including container virtualization, separation of storage and computing, and shared distributed block storage. Enterprises can scale up or down within five minutes, with a maximum of 1,000 cores to ensure the computing power and up to 100 TB storage. POLARDB is considered a choice enterprise database in the cloud era.
Graph Database (GDB)
In some scenarios, databases are expected to excel at multi-relational data queries. For example, in financial fraud detection scenarios, a graph database is required to evaluate and score a customer’s credit level based on the credit information of a contact for loans (or another person that can keep in touch with the contact). If the credit score is too low, financial institutions can refuse the loan or increase the interest rate.
Alibaba Cloud GDB can be applied in the aforementioned scenarios. Being the first cloud-native graph database in China, GDB supports in-depth optimization of highly relational datasets and allows querying and storing data with multiple degrees of relationships by using the shortest line of code. GDB provides 10+ times better query performance, with the query time reduced to milliseconds.
ApsaraDB for RDS
As the earliest cloud database service of Alibaba Cloud, RDS has grown into a full-fledged database service with numerous features. RDS supports mainstream databases such as MySQL, SQL Server, PostgreSQL, and MariaDB and can meet requirements in different scenarios.
Data Transmission Service (DTS)
The most critical part of migrating traditional databases to the cloud is to ensure reliable and efficient database migration. This is because that the core business of enterprises runs on databases and traditional database migration tools inevitably cause downtime during the migration process and hinder the business continuity.
Alibaba Cloud Data Transmission Service (DTS) can significantly speed up database migration to the cloud. It features a distributed concurrent architecture, smart sharding, and parallel capturing. DTS supports 18 data sources and is the fastest tool for migrating hundreds of PB of data, with the data migration speed up to 100 MB/s.
